Cubs Hitting Coach Bill Mueller Resigns

In a move Tuesday morning, Cubs hitting coach Bill Mueller has resigned after one season. First reported by CSN’s Patrick Mooney, comes after Cubs President of baseball operations, Theo Epstein, said that the coaching staff would be returning for another season during last week’s state-of-the-team address. This comes as a surprise to Cub fans, but sources close to the situation, claim that Mueller had been ...

Wrigley Field Will Host Meaningful Games Again Soon

  Stay patient, ever hoping Cub fan that's longing for a commodity competitive enough to warrant your approval. The current product at the major league level -- minus a couple of key pieces -- is definitely hard to be proud of. It's not particularly fun, either, to have limited to no success against division rivals. The recent example of Cubs debauchery came at the hands of their most hated rival, St. ...

Arismendy Alcantara Forcing Himself to Big Leagues

Winning consistently on the North Side is not far away (presumably) and fans are getting restless. During what is now the third year of a total rebuild headed by Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, the product put on the major league field has been less than stellar to say the least. Although the Cubs are among Major League Baseball’s highest grossing markets, lately they’re being confused with clubs who are consid ...

What Did Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer Get Themselves Into

“Lovable Losers” is a label often affiliated with Cubs lore due to the countless agonizing, unsuccessful seasons. Yet, Cubs fans everywhere continue to support a franchise that has not been involved in the game’s most glorious spectacle since 1945. What’s astounding is that an organization whose last World Series Championship came six years before the start of World War I is among the top financially succes ...

The First Annual MLB Draft Timeline

In 2003, the Seattle Mariners drafted Adam Jones 37th overall with the final pick in the first round of the Rule 4 Draft, more commonly known as the First Year Player Draft, or simply the MLB Draft. Ten years later, he is arguably the best player taken in that first round, with apologies to Rickie Weeks. So how were 36 players selected before Jones, including some guy named Kyle Sleeth, who the Tigers took ...

WSD: Theo tells it like it is

The original article appeared on World Series Dreaming. There was an article on the Tribune earlier that I couldn't read because they're a bunch of lame-os and decided to put everything behind a paywall.  Thanks a lot, you elitist pigs.  Anyway, thanks to Bleacher Nation and Phil Rogers, we have an excerpt of David Haugh's interview with Cubs President of Baseball Operations Theo Epstein.  Here's what Theo ...

Breaking Down a Potential Trade for David Price

  Last Thursday, I wrote about the moves the Cubs have made over the last 12 months and took a look at some moves going forward with their rebuilding process. I really went to an extreme, formulating a deal for Giancarlo Stanton (which was, in retrospect, a complete joke) and envisioning a free agency signing of Hanley Ramirez. One of the more believable potential trades I mentioned was for Tampa Bay’s ...

The State of the Chicago Cubs Franchise: 2012 in Review

The 2012-2013 Major League Baseball offseason is more than halfway over, and another spring is about to arrive without a big name like Hamilton or Greinke appearing on the back of a Cubs jersey. While the casual fan might be upset by this thought, I’m here to tell you that the Theo Rebuilding Plan is in full swing and the front office brain trust has kept the franchise on the right track. Taking a look at h ...

Jackson, Vitters signals new stage in Cubs’ rebuilding process

When Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer took over the baseball operations for the Cubs, they gave their whole disclaimer to Cubs fans about how the rebuilding process would take time and how they plan to build through the minor league system. While the rebuilding process is still in action, Cubs fans will at least now get to see a large part of the team’s future at the MLB level, as highly regarded prospects Brett ...
